Well, we’ve left behind that gorgeous Full Moon, but six rays of our seven-pointed Fairy Star remain, as well as the Potential for Insights that have the Power to Rebirth us. We’re also Opening up to vigorous Expansion of our Consciousness (or vigorous Resistance thereto, your Choice – if you encounter vigorous Resistance to anything this week, you know you’ve come home to your Shadow), we’ll be Learning a great deal about Instincts and Manifestation, and by Wednesday we could put all these Energies together into a whole new level of Grace. Let’s go through that again, one process at a time…
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
- Six rays of our seven-pointed Fairy Star remain; in other words, Magic is still afoot. Enjoy it!
The six rays are Jupiter-North Node (Leaping forward toward our Mission), Asbolus (Intuition), Uranus-Vesta (Breaking through Archetypes), Ceres (Sustainability), Chariklo-Venus (Walking in Beauty), and Mars-Juno (Active Exploration of the Edges of our Consciousness). It’s particularly lit up
- Around 12:30 am PST (and a day or two before and after) on 25 January when Juno Initiates Mars
- At 2am PST on 27 January plus or minus a couple of days, when Chariklo Initiates Venus
- From 11am till 9pm PST on 27 February, when the Moon crosses Jupiter-North Node
- From 5pm PST 30 January till 5am 1 February, when the Moon crosses Mars-Juno

Use the incredible Power here to Manifest whatever you Want. Do that by Confronting and Embracing all Resistance you have to it. Usually that just involves eliminating negative thoughts. “Yes, I Want Abundance, But no, I don’t Want to endure Slavery to get it!” Or, “Yes, I want to be Healed, But I want some money left afterwards!” Borrowing a trick from Dr. Kim, we can make our YesButs into YesAnds. That might look like “Yes, I want Abundance, And I want Freedom and Integrity too!” Or, “Yes, I want to be Healed, Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, Completely, and Inexpensively!”
It will take some Mirror work to find all the hidden Buts. Ask yourself, “If I did get what I Want, what would be the downside or unpleasant consequences?”

- The Potential for Insights with the Power to Rebirth us also remains.
Dwarf Plutoid Haumea (Rebirth) is no longer standing completely still, but it’s still moving so slowly that we still consider it to be Stationary (Strong). And its still the focus of a Mjolnir (Epiphany) on the Neptune-Asbolus Square (Opening up to your Guides and Guardian Angels).
It’s not about Doing, it’s about Allowing. Go over your ToDo List and take each item and turn it into a Permission. Rather than “I have to go to work” or “I have to get another job,” you might make it “I Allow myself to Receive [some reasonable number] dollars per week.” You’ll have a thousand YesButs to that. What you Want is to Receive the rewards. Chances are you Do things you Love to Do, and you Do things because you get paid to Do them. If the ‘twain meet, you’re one of the “Lucky” few. Can you Conceive of getting paid without Doing anything, and without beating yourself up?
I know that’s a Stretch for most of us. But it’s a Magical time to Stretch! See how close you can get. Monitor the Feelings in your Body to see what YesButs are still hiding in there.

- We’re Opening up to vigorous Expansion of our Consciousness.
Or vigorous Resistance thereto, your Choice. If you encounter vigorous Resistance to anything this week, you know you’ve come home to your Shadow. If the Resistance is in someone else, bring it home anyway. You may need a Funhouse Mirror for the latter. Suppose they’re Resisting what you Want. Does that indicate a lack of Commitment on your part? In some form, probably so, because if you were fully invested in your Intention, obstacles would fall away.
So it’s likely that some part of yourself doesn’t Believe you’re ready yet, and the form of their Resistance may be a clue to what part of you is trying to keep you Safe.
Juno (the Edges of Consciousness) Initiates Mars (Action) at half past midnight PST on 25 January, at 12 Scorpio, “An official embassy ball,” beginning a new two-year Cycle. Rudhyar exposes his European roots by interpreting this Degree as “Group-consciousness as it flowers at the highest level in cultural exchanges between representatives of the elite of the ruling class.” Wow.
I went with a New Yorker friend to the opera once, and I was amazed at how the only reason folks seemed to be there was to Show Up and Show Off. I guess if you admire Wealth and Power above all else, and you Believe that selling your Soul for it is what’s required, that’s probably appropriate. My own interpretation of an official embassy ball would be more like “The opportunity to Witness the places where we Abandon ourself in favor of Other Peoples’ Expectations.” And Heal them.
Mars-Juno is one ray of the Fairy Star. It’s particularly lit up from 5pm PST 30 January till 5am PST 1 February, when the Moon crosses it.
We expand Consciousness through Differentiation or Discernment, not through Discovery. So we Notice that we Do certain things because we think Other People Expect us to. Having Noticed, we can look to see if we really Love to Do those things, if they’re a True part of our Deeper Self. And if not, then how much does it cost us to Betray our Deeper Self in that way. Is the tradeoff worth it? What if it doesn’t seem like a Big Deal, but it Creates Stress that could threaten our Health. Scan your Body to see.
Remember, if you’ve Created something once, you can Create it again. If you’ve Created Abundance by Doing something that also Creates Stress, you’re likely to Believe that the Stress is a necessary part of the Abundance. It’s not. You just need to PIAVA Creating Abundance without Stress rather than Creating Abundance and Stress. The Magic is here; use it!

- We’ll be Learning a great deal about Instincts and Manifestation.
Mercury (Mentality) is Stationary turning Direct at 2pm PST on 25 January, Conjunct Pluto (Transformation, ie, Trance Re-Formation). Mercury-Pluto (Inspiration) Quintiles the South Node (our Hidden Skills), forming the base of a Lunar Quintile Yod (Learning how to Trust our Instincts and their Role in Manifestation).
We consider our Response to the Moon to have three levels. First, we see the Moon as Random Emotions, not Emotions consistently triggered by our Values, but variable Responses to the same Stimulus – someone cuts us off in traffic, and at times we’re Angry, but other times we just ease off the gas. Second, the Moon represents our Instincts. There’s a good chance that when we’re Angry, it’s in response to the Anger of the guy (undoubtedly a guy) who cut us off, and when we just ease off, the other driver is probably just rushing someone to the hospital.
The Third level is Manifestation. It’s Lunar Energy that keeps Matter from spontaneously returning to Energy. When we have no Resistance in our Body, we Manifest at will. As Dr. Kim says, there are no “negative Emotions,” there are only habitual Reactions to some Emotions that create unhealthy Stress in our Bods. Many of these are Cultural (like the Emotional residue of the Crusades that we’re still dealing with), but many are individualized based on our personal inertial Karma. If we Pay Attention, there’s a good chance we can become Conscious of some of our Unconscious self-sabotaging Patterns here.

- By Wednesday we could put all these Energies together into a whole new level of Integrity.
At 2am PST on 27 January, Chariklo Initiates Venus, at 6 Capricorn, “Ten logs lie under an archway leading to darker woods.” We probably wouldn’t notice an inner-planet astroevent like this one, since, occurring annually we have plenty of Experience with it, but Venus-Chariklo is one of the rays of the Fairy Star. Centaur Chariklo represents our Charm and Beauty, and Venus our Values, so if we align these two we’ll be Walking in more Beauty than is our usual custom. However, ten logs block the way.
In spite of all the Magic and Grace and Dedication and Insight that we’ve described above, the path to Healing our Self-Sabotage is blocked by our addiction to Matter. Grace is fabulous, but there is nothing like a Challenge to increase the probability of Discernment and the probability that we won’t just be Grateful for what befalls us, we’ll also be more Conscious of how and what we Manifest. Our Belief that Matter is Primary, and Energy Secondary, is the Challenge for the next few weeks. Note that Emotion is Energy.
With consummate assistance from the Medical Cartel, we bemoan – we become Victim to – a medical diagnosis, for instance, Believing that this “disease” has fallen from the sky like a Safe, while we just happened to be walking by. We don’t connect it to our diet, our Belief that Stress is the requisite for Survival, to the poisons that the Chemical and Petrochemical Industries surround us with, to suppression of True Emotions, to the Childhood or Past-Life Abuse that’s demanding Healing but we’ve ignored all our Lives.
So our assignment is to put the Magic and Grace and Insight and available Energy to work. Whenever we encounter a perceived roadblock or a speedbump, PIAVA that is be removed. If it is, then it’s an affliction we were ready to Let Go of. We don’t say “release it,” because we don’t want to renew our lease on it. Remember, Karma does not grasp us, we grasp it – every time our “favorite” untoward events occur, we curse our fate, rather than Celebrating the opportunity to Respond differently this time and begin building a different Inertial Habit Pattern.
If the obstruction doesn’t dissolve immediately, we have to Take Responsibility for it. That’s Responsibility, not Blame. Blame looks backward to assign cause to an effect. Responsibility looks forward to start Creating a new Pattern that results in more desirable outcomes. We PIAVA, Oh, if I Create my own Reality, then how did I contribute to that? If we succeed in Changing the Subject and Paying Attention ( https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/ ) and maintaining our Curiosity, our role will become obvious.
Usually we Create what we don’t Want because two different parts of us – of varying degrees of Consciousness and lack thereof – Want two different things, and we have a Karmic Belief that they’re incompatible. We want Success, for instance, but our Health interferes, perhaps because Dad always told us that Big Stress is necessary for Big Success, while the Body Wants the sort of Health that less Stress provides. So the Body warns us that Big Success without Health is kind of empty, enlisting our Belief that our Health is in the hands of the Medical Cartel, not in our own hands, to do so.
So for persistent roadblocks we need to find out what part of ourSelf Wants to protect us from the downside of what we’re Consciously trying to achieve, and appreciate that Want. It’s not about Success versus Disease, it’s about Success and Good Health. There’s no conflict in Reality, only in our Beliefs. We can Choose to have Success and Good Health, usually by intending and discovering how to Compromise our True Self less.

The Energy will feel a bit less friendly by early February, but if we’ve maintained our focus on the opportunities to Let Go of Bummers rather than Grasping them, we’ll recognize that this Cleansing is just rinsing a little deeper.
By the end of January we’re moving into the field of the 6 February Sedna (Actions instigated by Fear) Station, and the Initiation of Ceres (Sustainability) by Nessus (Undeserved but Claimed Privilege) on 2 February and by 2007 OR10 (Irruption of Material from the Deep Unconscious) on 4 February.
